We cooperate as an association to advance the practice of sculpture and the reputation and appreciation of sculpture and sculptors in the community. This is regardless of whether or not we make a living from sculpture and regardless of our preferred style or medium. To this end we support artists’ moral rights, we advocate a professional attitude to the production and presentation of work and encourage the artistic and intellectual stimulation of interaction amongst artists of all persuasions.
As many of you will know I resigned as President of the Association of Sculptors at the AGM. I was disappointed that I was unable to find anyone to replace me. However, Yvonne Monik is now Vice President. Yvonne is very willing and capable but works full time and is also continuing to be very involved with our exhibitions. It would be great if someone would step up to help her.

With much excitement I joined the (European) Sculpture Network on an exclusive trip to Venice for its 57th International Art Exhibition "La Biennale di Venezia". There, 43 participants from nine different countries had the opportunity to enjoy summer and art in Northern Italy and travel with other like-minded companions who shared their passion for Contemporary Sculpture! We opened up the possibility to exchange views and to visit 18 presentations from various artists.

Two years ago we held a very successful end of year get together out here at the gateway to the Yarra Valley, and felt we should do it again.
